im working on a 99 ford escort 2.0L. came in as a no start. vehical had no power at all. found the 100 amp fuse blown. replaced and turned the ignition on and fuse blew again. checked all other fuses and found no issue. my diagram show the 3 wires that supplie the 100 amp fuse goes to the alternator, stater, and head relay. disconnected all the above and replaced fuse and it blew again with the jump box ingnition off. Checked the wires and harness and cldnt find any issues. Any suggestions? Car has been sitting for 6 mnths.

Re: Help

I would say 1 of the 3 wires would be shorted to ground. If you disconnected all 3 and still blows the fuse it has to be shorted to something.

If it has been sitting for 6 months i'll bet my last beer that mice have chewed through
the wiring.
